      If the OP is still on the fence after a month, here's a reason to buy the game: Gog has it on sale for $17.50 right now.

      I don't know what the oldest strategy game is but I did play a turn-based western gunfight game on the Apple II a couple times. Must have been around 1989 and it was copyrighted in 85. Pretty...

      Korean spam bot?

      As far as greatest turn-based games, I'd give second place to Silent Storm. It was a great game with many mechanics yet to be surpassed by new games but it did have a major few...

      Mine just showed up yesterday as well so it must be normal for USA delivery. Unpacked it but haven't sat down to look at it yet.

      I haven't played vanilla so I can't be certain it's not an XNT thing but all soldiers have a chance of being alive at the end of a mission if they are on the dropship. The ones that are knocked out...

      It is definitely built around taking casualties. You can lose an entire squad and still come back for another fight. However, this doesn't mean that each squad member isn't important. They are -...

      First of all, though I'm playing the XNT mod, I'm pretty sure that losing 6 men in half a month is not close to game over even in vanilla. Seems pretty normal. If you can at least recover some tech...

      I forget but think I did make minor adjustments. Perhaps I should just do a major nerf to the weapon stats and see if I can notice any effect at all. I might just be over-estimating the impact of...

      First of all, I'm playing with the XNT mod at the moment in case it makes any difference for modding purposes.

      Zerg rushes would be the most effective if they happened only about 1% of the time. The idea is that they are rare enough that the player never really expects them but frequent enough that they...

      Hmm. Regarding door abuse, I think it would work better to have it take 6 AP to open the door and 15 to close it.

      If that is the case, it would be handy if the AI's distance calculations for triggering aggression were done as percentages of the total sight range instead of using hard numbers.
